The man who strikes first admits that his ideas have given out. –Chinese proverb The same can be said of the person who descends to personal attacks rather than discussion.
Recipes, anyway. Katie was informed by her doctor this week that she really needs to put on 10–12 lbs, and she’ll still be on the thin side for her height and build. Now, we’ve gone through this “must gain weight” thing throughout her 14 years. She’s always been in the 90th percentile or so for height […]
Religious Left merchandise — some great t‑shirts and such. And I’m not even a Christian :-) (Ganked from theferrett)
I have all the Liaden chapbooks! SQUEE!
I’ve wanted to go whitewater rafting again since I tried it with Katie’s father around 1989. It was a marvelous, exhilarating experience! I’ve decided it’s time to stop “wanting” and talking about it and just plan a trip. Katie is old enough now—most places seem to have a 12/13-year-old minimum age for their trips. And I […]

It’s such a joy to turn on the news and see your bank! Actually, we knew there’d been an “incident.” Sam stopped by a branch of our bank this morning on the way to work. He didn’t get to do his banking, as the doors were covered by crime scene tape. I’m just glad he wasn’t there […]

If you’re experiencing any flu symptoms, go RIGHT NOW to your doctor—call, at least—and get a prescription for Tamiflu. That stuff really works. My doc prescribed a course of it for me and curiousmay9, who was just starting to show symptoms when she took me to see him. She forgot to take it one day and […]
